During his team’s Week 5 demolition of the Dallas Cowboys, San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle had himself a very impressive performance.
Kittle finished the win over the Cowboys with three catches for 67 yards, however, all three of his catches resulted in touchdowns for the 49ers.
Following one of his trips to the end zone, Kittle lifted up his shirt to reveal a message on his shirt that read, “F*** Dallas.”
Many have suspected that Kittle would end up receiving a fine from the NFL for the apparel that he shared with the crowd last Sunday, and thanks to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, we now know that the San Francisco tight end has been fined $13,699 by the league.

Considering Kittle is currently one of the highest-paid tight ends in the entire NFL, he’s likely not going to lose sleep over the fine he received from the league on Friday.
In fact, he said on Thursday that he expected to get fined and that he would have no problem doing what he did after his touchdown last week all over again.
During his career in the NFL, Kittle has always been one of the more outspoken players in the league, and someone who has never been afraid to ruffle a few feathers.
However, he has always been able to back it up with his performance out on the field for the 49ers.
In five games with San Francisco this season, Kittle has hauled in 17 catches for 215 yards and three touchdowns.
On Sunday, he will attempt to add to his totals when the 49ers take on the Cleveland Browns.NEXT: George Kittle Opens Up On His Controversial T-Shirt
